Yes.

Those are my exact feelings about those movies, too. 3 and 5 really stand on their own while the other ones flounder when compared to their book counterparts.

The Goblet of Fire took way too much out from the book. Plain and simple. I don't think I could watch it again.

I'll look into viewing the fifth one at some point.

Agreed. I'm honestly not sure how people who haven't read the books know wtf is going on. 5 is worth it methinks. I mean, there was stuff left out, but, I think it was better than the 1, 2, and 4.

It normally doesn't bother me when stuff gets cut out of film adaptations, but in the case of GoF they just spent waaaay too much time on the three big set pieces of the book and also the Yule Ball. Shoddy script really and I wasn't impressed with the visual style at all either.

OotP on the other hand had a great script salvaged from one of my least favourite books in the series. All the fat stripped away and a slick, cohesive plotline. Shame Kloves came back for this one.

That and Dumbledore manhandles Harry in his office in that one scene in Goblet. That was ridiculous.

If only they had done the first two movies and especially Goblet of fire as well as they did it with Azkaban and Phoenix. Movie 3 may have the best directing and camera work, but no. 5 is my favourite - they did a good adaptation and made arguably one of the best HP movies based on one of the weakest HP books.

I just wish they went to LotR route to making these movies though. Release a tight cut for theaters, then integrate in a bunch of footage for the DVD release. Hardcore fans are happy because the film's more in line with the book, casual fans got to see a fun movie, Warner Bros. milks the cash cow a little more... everyone's happy.

Terry Gilliam was Rowling's first choice to direct Sorcerer's Stone. That would've been the most bizarre things ever.

I'm of the opinion that the films have gotten better as they've gone along.

They seem to be getting more enjoyable as Hermione gets more, ummm, powerful.

That, and the leading three characters, especially Ron and Hermione, actually were acting in the movie as they were written in the book, not as that other script writer sees them.
Also, the latest director improved upon their acting.

This one girl I know was actually her pen pal in her pre-Potter days. True fact.

One day, we're going to get a post about how you've been incarcerated. We'll all know why.

I need to actually sit down and read Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows.

I've read the first five and for some reason I just stopped.
